50th Anniversary

January next year will be the 50th year of the renowned Dinagyang Festival.

The festival is expected to be grandiose said Alex Soncio.

The Dinagyang festival started in 1967 when the replica of the image of the Sto. Niño ( Child Jesus ) was brought from Cebu to San Jose parish. Thus, Dinagyang is the Hiligaynon word for revelry and merrymaking. It will be the 50th year of the festival
